Blockchain is perhaps one of the most controversial technological advancements in recent history, but it is also one of the most valuable of them all. When blockchain was first introduced to the world, it was on the basis of it functioning and thriving as the foundational framework of cryptocurrency (an innovation that, to be frank, was controversial in its own way). However, over time blockchain has proven time and again that its foundational level of privacy and security is practically unparalleled, and that is where its success across the board has come from. These days, blockchain is arguably the most powerful and promising advancement in security measures in the digital era. All over the world, industries and businesses, and even individuals, have begun to make use of blockchain more and more, and it is a trend that continues to build momentum the more that people pay attention to it. And all the extra attention is for a very good reason.

In the digital era, we are literally immersed in and surrounded by great feats in digitalisation and technological advancement. All these innovations have of course been valuable in their own ways, but there are others that have proven to be useful in more than one sole way (as if that were not enough). And more to the point, blockchain can and does serve as the foundations of more and more security measures across the board. From the companies online offering everything from retail to PTE coaching (and everything in between), to the empires and even entire industries that are working towards creating a more advanced approach to their security, blockchain is everyone’s favourite buzzword. And what is really exciting is that it is proving to be so much more than just a buzzword, too. In fact, blockchain is proving to be, even now, a leading revolution in security the world over.

The decentralised nature of blockchain means that it is a security framework that is run off the tail of multiple computers. What this means, is that blockchain systems are compiled of multiple computers that work both independently and together to create the foundations of security in the online landscape. When new information (i.e. the blocks) are added to the chain, they are checked thoroughly by each individual computer. If the information entered is not verified by even just one of the computers, it is rejected from the entire blockchain. The underlying encryption tags work wonders in keeping all information added to the blockchain authentic, and as a result the entire blockchain maintaining its authenticity. In this way, blockchain is one of the most unique approaches to online security, and yet arguably the most effective as well. Blockchain has become the new frontier in privacy and security in the digital era, and when you consider what it is capable of, and how it functions, it makes perfect sense on all fronts.

The blockchain revolution is well and truly underway, and with it comes a lot of questions and innovative mindsets that are poised to challenge it. The power of blockchain is that it allows for the security of systems on an ongoing basis, without interference from inauthentic approaches and innovations trying to get in the way and taint the chain. It is not difficult to see how blockchain has evolved from being the backend of cryptocurrency’s security measures, into a multitool that provides ample security for companies, industries, and individuals all over the world. Inputting data – especially sensitive data – has always been risky in terms of online privacy and security, and blockchain is working its magic to ensure that privacy and security are handled in the most innovative and reliable way possible, going forward further into the digital era. If this is just the beginning for the evolving blockchain revolution, it is a beginning that is both exciting and promising of a future that is more private and secure online, in every sense of the words.

Blockchain is one of the most broadly useful technological advancements of our time, and it continues to prove itself useful in more and more ways every other day. The decentralised nature of blockchain makes it security framework far more difficult (if not virtually impossible) to penetrate. Because any newly input information, or changes, must go through all computers part of the blockchain network, if they prove to be inauthentic in even just one of those computers, the information is rejected from the blockchain. This obviously goes a long way in keeping the blockchain entirely authentic. And it is an innovation that is changing the way that companies, industries, and even individuals think of and secure the privacy of their data. Just the beginning of the blockchain revolution, this is an exciting taste of what is to come.
